I'm not buying anything, but I wouldn't call it so much a boycott as just the fact that I already have more than I need so why spend money on merely better sounding copies of stuff I have??

Like many others I had/have very negative feelings about the foolish, amateurish way everything was handled on their end and was let down to realize that after all the years maybe all we were was customers to them after all, not fellow travelers.

Even the recent decision to stop MP3 downloads on the Dead Net tapers section seems like PR suicide. They actually were spreading some good will for a while there but now are just spreading a familiar stench.

The boards becoming unavailable here was a blessing in disguise as like others I found other sites and friends through whom I got far more than was even on offer at LMA, both GD and JGB.

I do wonder what Rhino et all are thinking though when the most popular new sources on the torrent sites may generate 500-1000 DL when its FOR FREE, how many folks does Rhino think are actually going to pay for what they release ???

I would consider pulling out my wallet for any unheard of early 70's boards or good videos but anything else I doubt it.
